Rewriting History

From Pennsylvania comes this interesting story about a church’s plan to remember George Bush’s war dead. Multiculturalism in America is also apparently dead, at least at the Bethel Assembly of God.

Crosses will go up in June on the front lawn of Bethel Assembly of God.

There will be more than 2,000 of them, all sparkling white, representing U.S. service members killed in Iraq. …

Organizers say the exhibit will be about compassion, not politics. It is not meant to make a statement for or against the Iraq war, Kish said, but to pay homage to the Americans who have died.

Each cross will bear the name and date of death of a service member. A larger cross and a banner stating “Freedom is never free” will tower over the display. …

Reaction to Bethel's plan has been favorable, too, he said.

“I haven’t gotten one negative e-mail,” Kish said. “I was expecting something, but it has been only positive.”

Maybe this post counts. Maybe this article counts too.

“Freedom is never free” ? If troops are in Iraq to protect my freedom, bring them home now. If Saddam would have invaded my county he wouldn't have lasted past lunch time; the shotgun users alone would have blow him to hell.. The chicken-little administration and its amazing how easy it is to manipulate people with trumped up scare stories.

and I wonder how much all this costs, wouldn't the money gave been better used to set up a college fund for the surviving familes' kids.
